alto saxophone


Réf. 2313052016

After 100 years of innovation, design, and manufacturing of the saxophone, Henri SELMER Paris redefines the modern identity of the alto saxophone with the Supreme.

The creation of the Supreme embodies the culmination of one century of expertise, combined with a perfectly mastered manufacturing process that lives up to the ambitions of the SELMER company.

The Supreme is characterized by a perfectly balanced tuning, infinite sound colors, and a great ease of response. It hides the natural and inherent constraints of the saxophone - the playing limitations are non-existent. Its roundness and projection capacity make it an instrument that is both traditional and resolutely modern.

The refinement and care taken in its manufacture, as well as its entirely corrected ergonomics, reveal an enjoyment and ease of play that has never been seen before.

Birth of a saxophone


Eight years ago, we set ourselves a challenge: to design the best saxophone ever made. A saxophone that would rise above musical genres. A saxophone that could be adapted to all sorts of music, playing styles and sound types. A saxophone whose ease and obviousness of playing would induce a direct and immediate relationship with sound.

To better free itself from musical genres and imagine this universal instrument, a team of saxophonists of various styles was formed. No acoustic, mechanical, ergonomic or aesthetic detail was overlooked.

Supreme alto


Two words: sublime and luminous. Sublime, because it's the perfect balance of incredible sound with a modern, efficient mechanism. Luminous, because its flexibility allows it to adapt to all colours and playing styles.
Vincent David
Like the Mark VI, the Supreme responds to extremely diverse instrumental approaches. Better still, it reveals the authentic acoustics of the saxophone, finally transparent to the many musical genres that demand it.
Claude Delangle
A compact, high-quality sound, with harmonic richness and great accuracy. It's also incredibly homogeneous from low to high register. It is truly an incredible instrument!
Rosario Giuliani
The new Supreme saxophone combines the sound of the legendary SELMER models with the technical modernity that makes it a great instrument, of incomparable and impeccable quality. SELMER continues to make history.
Baptiste Herbin
The brilliant mechanics of the SELMER Paris Supreme alto combine a delicate timbre with vibrant colour. I am able to sing through the instrument, effortlessly expressing my emotions with sensitivity. It's probably the highest quality instrument I've ever played!
Chika Inoue
The "Supreme" is the new generation of saxophone for the 21st century musician, made by the legendary SELMER Paris family. The SELMER Paris Supreme is a work of art. Not only is it visually sublime, but the beauty of its acoustic properties is unequalled!
Timothy McAllister
The Selmer Supreme is simultaneously vintage and modern. The instrument is a tribute to the quality that SELMER Paris has known for years - the quality that made it the choice of John Coltrane - with modern engineering. Simply, it is the vintage saxophone of tomorrow.
